Ran 5.6 miles on the treadmill at the gym. Forgot to check the time, but ran at about a 7:20 pace for the majority of it. Heck yeah I left that place in style.
So just some random things that come to mind that I learned this weekend.
I have seriously mastered the art of getting ready in the car (or attempting to anyway).
I rarely get ready at home anymore. I really should update my make up though as I’m fairly certain the eye shadow I’m using is about 8 years old. Lovely.
I remembered I really like these Peanut Butter and Dark Chocolate Kind Bars as a quick on the go snack. They sell them at Trader Joe’s for $.99.
I learned that having a dishwasher is luxurious. I spent the other night cramming as many dishes as possible in ours only to find out that it’s not working. It was not fun unloading all those dirty dishes and washing them and the weekend hasn’t been that great without it either. We’re so spoiled with simple things like a dishwasher. I can’t wait to get it fixed.
While I do really miss the dishwasher, on the other hand I realized it’s kind of nice not having a working phone for awhile. Mine was dead all Saturday afternoon through Sunday late morning and wouldn’t charge (who the heck knows what’s going on there), and it was a great excuse to be away from everything.
I had a lot of time to focus on other really fun things.
Ha ha. It’s okay to be jealous.
I bet you’re really jealous about this week’s project.
Goodness help me if that messy office isn’t organized by the end of the week. Embarrassing, I know.
I’ve been drinking this little concoction lately almost every day. I’m growing quite fond of it.
1/2 Nuun tablet (the flavor changes), 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar, a squeeze of fresh lemon juice, a couple drops liquid Stevia and some cinnamon in my ice water. It’s so refreshing and you get those apple cider vinegar benefits.
Um, so there is such a thing as too much wasabi on a thrown together salmon salad. It is not meant to take the place of salad dressing.
Oops. My nose was burning big time. I could barely talk to the boys during lunch yesterday. I was pretty pleased with the little salad though- sliced cucumbers, raw salmon from Costco, seaweed snack (also from Costco), a little soy sauce, some pickled ginger and a little too much wasabi.
Speaking of hot, I finally opened this cool Devil’s Dust habanero hot salt from Mom. I like it and I guess it will hold me over until I can get to Trader Joe’s to get that new ghost pepper salt grinder.
Oh and a couple of toddler veggie tricks. I heard something like it takes up to 15 times of introducing a food or vegetable to a child to get them to like it or try it.
I guess I’ve introduced roasted broccoli that many times because this past weekend the boys ate it right up. Judah even ate the burnt ones from last night that Andrew said I burned on purpose so I could have them all. I would never do such a thing.
I will confess that they will only eat the vegetables if they’re dipped in light ranch dressing though. They like these new Spinach and Kale Bites from Trader Joe’s I found in the freezer sections too. Talk about toddler friendly.
And well, I also learned that gloomy weather is great for a few of my favorite things:
Some Muppet puppet shows (even though Beaker was missing) in our world class theatre we made,
some cuddle time on the couch watching movies
and baking a new amazing version of doughtzel balls.
Oh yes, just you wait. There’s a new version of these AND a giveaway with one of my favorite nut butters later this week.
I’m already planning on making that spaghetti squash pizza crust for The Biggest Loser tonight after teaching classes. I can’t wait.
Hope you have a great start to your week.
Do you ever get ready in the car?
Do you use your dishwasher often?
Who’s your favorite Muppet?
